Bulldozer returns to Graminhais

After the work done in the Graminhais in the summer of 2011, in September the latest works were performed with the use of a machine, building dikes and drainage ditches enclosing the old roads to aid on the recovery of the peatbogs.

 The intervention was carried out over two weeks in the area that hadn’t had work done last year, since it is a very large area and the climatic conditions are adverse most days.

The work took only two weeks, since much of the process was done last year. It’s already possible to see some results in that area after the intervention, with the peatbogs retaining some water that was previously carried by drainage ditches and paths accentuating its erosion and reducing water retention in the peatbogs.
